hojomojo Posted July 7, 2008 Report Share Posted July 7, 2008 Hi from a lurker-turned-post-noob! I'm currently designing/planning a strat-esque body build (my first) and I got a stupid idea in my head that I want a B/W/B style pickguard, but I also want it to have a woodgrain surface (something like white ash). Then I'd like to stain/dye it as black as possible. And then somehow give it a glossy finish... rendition of my "almost ideal" PG: http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l7/kylew.../BWB-WoodPG.jpg So the first idea I get is to just buy B/W/B PG stock and glue ash veneer to it, then cut out & bevel my PG... stain it, clearcoat it with waterbased lacquer, and buff it. But I'm just sort of wondering how well I'll be able to pull it off, and got curious if anyone here might be able to either point out issues I'll have doing this to the veneer, or else give other totally new suggestions on how I can get a black woodgrain surface with a white pinstripe around it. I can't seem to find too many examples like it on the interweb... And while I'm at it, here's what I'm hoping to be next fall http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l7/kylew...retrocaster.jpg I'm a huge geek - Don't ask. I'd welcome any suggestions to its cosmetics though Peace! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
